10 Ways to Make Yourself Happy

Got the blues? Feeling down? Stressed? In life we are constantly advised to GO, GO, GO and achieve goals! This can takes its toll-we need to sometimes ‘smell the roses’ or do something little for ourselves to keep our happiness in check!

1. Grab a takeaway coffee and sit at your favourite spot at a nearby park!

4.Catch up on sleep. But don’t overdo it! It is common when your feeling down to want to sleep all of the time!

5.Do something ‘touristy’ in your city! Don’t forget to take photographs!

10. Boring but effective step: sort out your life out-clean out the cobwebs from your closet, see the doctor, address your financial! Do this then follow steps 1-9

HELPFUL HINTS:

1.Indulge a little but not too much! Enjoy online shopping, buy your favourite chocolate, or get a message – just keep it in moderation!

2.Do stay away from negative people, drugs and alcohol.

3.Confide in people who you can trust to comfort you!
